The funds objective is to achieve long-term growth in value, investing in shares of companies on a global basis. The fund's approach is to be a long-term investor in its chosen stocks and it will not adopt short-term trading strategies. The fund aims to invest in businesses that can sustain a high return on operating capital employed, whose advantages are difficult to replicate, which do not require significant borrowing to generate returns, with a high degree of certainty of growth from reinvestment of their cash flows at high rates of return, that are resilient to change, particularly technological innovation.
